A Poem By Lucy Anne // 4/17/2013

Something I wrote just now for Grammar. :)

~~~~

Gurgling, bubbling, rushing stream
Racing over rocks and me
Slipping under a twister so very
White and liquid foamy.

Head-on collision – oh what shall we do?
We tear away – so very quickly to notice.
Twisting right, then left, and finally straight
Down and – slam! – disturbing once still waters.

Spraying like sand and like rainbow sprinkles
Raining above photographers and lapping dogs
We do this all day, all month, and all year…
Oh, how wonderful is the waterfall!

Very evocative, but I did not

Very evocative, but I did not expect it to be a waterfall! In my minds eye it was one of those natural stream water slides--like in Fiji--but it still makes sense with the additional knowledge. It also makes me want to go swimming.

Oh, thank you! Haha, being that you thought it was something else, was that supposed to be a critique?

I LOVE your quote.

"We're fools whether we dance or not,
so we might as well dance."
―Japanese Proverb

It's just so LOVE for a dancer. :) Read my poem Farewell and you'll get what I mean.

Cool

I'd have to agree with Sarah. I was not expecting it to be a waterfall... I thought it really was a tornado or something like a natural disaster.
Very interesting wording... like "lapping dogs" that one stuck out to me the most... I don't quite get it... but cool poem anyways!

Thanks. Actually as I read it now, it really doesn't bring to my mind a waterfall but a water park slide. Hm. Brings back fun memories anyways. :)
